If you’ve ever been really dry and thirsty on a hot summer’s day, you already understand why this is such a dangerous season for homeless and forgotten animals in the metro Atlanta area . . .
- When water sources that dogs and cats depend on dry up, dehydration leaves them highly susceptible to heatstroke.
- Additionally, the annual spring “baby boom” of kittens and puppies leads to an increase in competition for food and water when they’re already in short supply.
- PLUS, we’re even more concerned because deadly diseases like heartworm and parvovirus spread faster in hot weather.
At the same time, our support slows down because many of our friends are traveling or busy with their families. The strain this causes threatens our ability to care for so many vulnerable animals at the very time our services are most critical!
For all these reasons, the Atlanta Humane Society has launched our Urgent Summer Fund Drive — and the animals are really counting on your continuing support!
You’ve already done so much to reduce animal suffering in our community, and we are truly grateful.
Now, we hope you’ll make your next gift today, to ensure that thousands of additional cats and dogs receive the lifesaving care they need.
Last year, we saved the lives of 11,000 dogs and cats. Your compassion made this possible.
But this summer, we anticipate that even more animals will come through our doors. They’ll need immediate . . .
- Care and shelter
- Vaccinations and medical treatment for illnesses and injuries
- Rescue from cruel and life-threatening puppy mill a nd hoarding situations
- Foster care and new, loving families through adoption
That’s why your ongoing generosity is critical. Homeless cats and dogs in our community can’t ask for help — so we’re asking for them. Please save lives this summer by making your generous gift today. Thank you!

P.S. Each summer, endless litters of newborn kittens find their way to AHS. Their moms are struggling to survive themselves, and it is all they can do to try to mother their babies. Your gifts mean life and a loving home to these tiny creatures. Please help by making your Urgent Summer Fund Drive gift today.
